Question

well after my detail this weekend i threw my foam polishing pads into the washer and let them soak for a little while. well i wasnt thinking when i did this because i had a red pad that hadnt been used yet and some of the white pads had revive on them. needless to say the pads have all changed colors. the white ones are purple, the yellow and orange ones are just a nasty lookin. this wont affect the pads performance will it? thanks!

Why are you putting them in the washer?

 

I usually use Dawn and clean them out in the kitchen sink and then let soak in a bucket of hot water. You're not machine washing them are you?

 

Color won't change a thing. You may look "pretty" when polishing though... lol

If you had the red one in there with them, then I'd say the red color bled. I remember when my son was in college. He washed his red shirt with his underwear.............ended up with very pink drawers. And then he dried them in the microwave. :lolsmack:

 

He got all new underwear the next weekend.
